    I installed Nxserver on Oracle Linux 8 as free. Getting below error

     nxexecPAMCheckCredentials: ERROR! Authentication failed.

     nxexecPAMCheckCredentials: Error code ‘7’, ‘Authentication failure’.

    NXSERVER WARNING! Process ‘/usr/NX/bin/nxexec –auth’ with pid ‘4444/419210’ finished with exit code 1 after 1,566 seconds.

    NXSERVER ERROR! Authentication with ‘NX-password’ from host ‘$host’ failed. Error is ‘Wrong password or login’.

    uncommented the/etc/server.cfg

    EnablePasswordDB 0 and EnableUserDB 0 and restarted the nxserver but it is not able to login

    It could be a problem with your permissions. Take a look at this topic https://forum.nomachine.com/topic/authentication-failed-with-error-7.

    These steps helped me

    sudo cp /etc/pam.d/nx /etc/pam.d/nx.ori
    sudo cp /etc/pam.d/sshd /etc/pam.d/nx

    But I now have new challenge. I am able to login but have the following issue

    “The server was unable to make the local display available or access to the local display is disabled.”
